1. Deploy the ui helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)


    To deploy a UI Helm chart on an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster with Pulumi, you'll need to go through several steps. First, you'll set up an AKS cluster. Then, you'll deploy the UI Helm chart to your AKS cluster. Below, I'll explain each step and provide you with the corresponding Pulumi TypeScript code.

    1. Creating an AKS Cluster: You will begin by creating an AKS cluster using the ProvisionedCluster resource from the azure-native provider. This will be your Kubernetes environment where your Helm chart will be deployed.

    2. Deploying a Helm Chart: After the AKS cluster is set up, you will then deploy the Helm chart using the Chart resource from the Kubernetes provider, which is capable of deploying Helm charts on a Kubernetes cluster.

    Here is the TypeScript program that accomplishes both of these steps:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as azureNative from "@pulumi/azure-native"; import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; const main = async () => { // Step 1: Create an AKS cluster const resourceGroup = new azureNative.resources.ResourceGroup("myResourceGroup"); const cluster = new azureNative.containerService.ManagedCluster("myAKSCluster", { resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name, agentPoolProfiles: [{ count: 2, maxPods: 110, mode: "System", osType: "Linux", vmSize: "Standard_DS2_v2", name: "agentpool", }], dnsPrefix: "myakscluster", kubernetesVersion: "1.20.9", linuxProfile: { adminUsername: "adminuser", ssh: { publicKeys: [{ keyData: "ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABgQD1b...", // Replace with your SSH public key }], }, }, }); // Export the kubeconfig const creds = pulumi.all([cluster.name, resourceGroup.name]).apply(([clusterName, rgName]) => azureNative.containerService.listManagedClusterUserCredentials({ resourceName: clusterName, resourceGroupName: rgName, })); const kubeconfig = creds.apply(creds => Buffer.from(creds.kubeconfigs[0].value, 'base64').toString()); // Step 2: Deploy a Helm chart const k8sProvider = new kubernetes.Provider("k8sProvider", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); const uiChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("ui-chart", { chart: "nginx", // Replace with your actual Helm chart name version: "1.16.0", // Specify the chart version fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami", // Replace with the chart's repository URL } }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the public endpoint of the UI service const service = uiChart.getResource("v1/Service", "my-ui-service"); export const uiServiceIp = service.status.apply(s => s.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip); }; main();

    In the code above, you will need to replace placeholders (like the SSH public key and Helm chart details) with your own values.

    • The ManagedCluster resource creates an AKS cluster within the provided resource group. Adjust the agentPoolProfiles to match the size and number of nodes you need.
    • The listManagedClusterUserCredentials function retrieves the credentials needed to interact with your AKS cluster, which are then used to configure the Kubernetes provider.
    • The Chart class from the pulumi/kubernetes package is used to deploy the Helm chart. We specify the chart name and version, and provide the repository URL where the chart is hosted.
    • We use getResource to access the Kubernetes Service deployed by the Helm chart and export its public IP address.

    Please make sure that you have Pulumi CLI installed and configured for Azure before running this program. You might also want to install kubectl to interact with your cluster directly. Once you have Pulumi installed, you can use the Pulumi CLI to create a new stack and then run pulumi up to create the resources in Azure.
